[Edit 18/11/2014: We have re-written this article to disclose more insightful screen grabs and expose the origins of Caroline Leaf’s teachings.]
THE UNQUALIFIED LEADING THE UNQUALIFIED
It should infuriate Christians that unqualified men endorse unqualified men at the expense of shunning qualified men who actually equip Christians with the wonderful saving power of God’s Word. What we are dealing with in Christianity today are outright frauds parading false credentials and deliberately refusing people entry into heaven due to their own Babylonian empires.
Jesus does not tolerate those who are false teachers in his kingdom – he calls them thieves and says that people like Phil Pringle, Chris Pringle and Caroline Leaf are here to kill, steal and destroy. Look at how Jesus portrayed the false teachers to their own faces in John 10:1-6 (emphasis ours):
“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
Caroline Leaf may be a qualified “cognitive neuroscientist with a PhD in Communication Pathology specializing in Neuropsychology”. But that does not mean she enters into the sheep pen by jumping the biblical requirements laid down by Christ and His Apostles.
According to Christ, His Apostles and God’s Holy Word – Dr Caroline Leaf is a fraud.
She has complete disregard for the qualifications of a pastor and teacher; opposes the teachings in scripture about women teaching and brings both the Christian faith and the fields of neuroscience/psychology into disrepute. This makes her an incredibly dangerous woman who is promoting rebellion in the church against God and His Word.
What makes this situation worse is that Phil and Chris Pringle encourage the Leaf in her fraudulent and rebellious ministry. Here is Phil and Chris Pringle with “Dr” Caroline Leaf.
To make matters worse, here is Kenneth and Gloria Copeland with “Dr” Caroline Leaf. It’s really important to examine what she teaches us about herself here:
Taping with two giants of faith – Kenneth and Gloria Copeland! I love this wonderful couple from whom I have learned so much over the years. What an honor to be on their BVOV broadcast!!

Even though we now know where Caroline got her teaching from, do you know why these endorsements are so scandalous?
Well in case you forgot, Phil Pringle publicly endorses Kenneth Copeland as a prophet of God.
Phil Pringle And Kenneth Copeland
It should not surprise you that both Phil and Chris Pringle and Kenneth and Gloria Copeland push Occult New Thought/Metaphysical cult teachings.
Phil Pringle Influenced By Occult/ New Thought/ Metaphysical Cult Teachings
And what makes this issue worse? Phil Pringle, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland all have false theological credentials.
Congo Line Of Unqualified Ministers Endorsed By Phil Pringle
It’s a network of shams and this is what Jesus hates. Look at what Jesus accuses the false teachers of being and observe how he opposes them in John 10:7-10 (emphasis ours):
Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
It was always in the heart of God that the Christian Church per se, be a safe and wholesome sheep fold – not a goat’s pen. So how did we get to where the church is today?
We allowed false prophets and hirelings to “climb up some other way”. We didn’t protect the fold from interlopers and infiltrators. We forgot to shut the back door on these false profit ministries. Remember, the wolves come dressed up in SHEEP’S CLOTHING… ( and when they are on days off, they wear Amani suits…)
Why is it that Christians put up with these “thieves”?
If you attend C3 Church, please consider the words of your Lord and Saviour made against your “pastors”. This is not our accusation against Phil and Chris Pringle. This is your God in His Holy Word exposing and accusing Phil Pringle, Dr Caroline Leaf and the Copeland’s, of acting outside the means he has instituted.
Who are we to elevate man above what God has established? We sincerely ask you to pray and consider the gravity of Jesus’ words.
ARE YOU GROWING HEALTHY TREE THOUGHTS?
We do not know what Caroline Leaf actually taught at C3’s Every Woman’s Conference. However, her instagram teachings may give us a clue.
There are photos of Caroline Leaf teaching at C3 Women’s Conference with a small tree on stage on her Instagram.
This is her commentary while she was at C3 EveryWomen’s Conference.
It is with our phenomenal minds that we understand the truths set down in our spirits!

And here are just a snippet of some of the crazy things she has taught.
DR LEAF SAYS…
… You can merge Roman Catholic Mysticism, New Age practices and neuroscience together and still call it Christianity!
… Research shows you are pre-wired to achieve a unique and divine purpose.
… When you babble… one goes through a… spiritual frontal lobotomy?
… When you are having a spiritual frontal lobotomy… you are getting wisdom?
... You should embrace Gnosticism 101.
… your grand kids are ugly because you didn’t control your mind?
.. we can unlock the magic in our brains! (Can anyone explain to us WHY she uses this verse?)
However, an honest assessment of the situation would admit that there is no ‘magic’ in our brains – only confusion, depression and anxiety. Without Christ in our lives, as Lord and Saviour, we are bankrupt and devoid of any genuine spirituality, and we tend to flounder around on an ocean of guilt, fear and a distinct lack of understanding as to our true position of being the redeemed of the Lord.
Unqualified “impastors” like Caroline Leaf are only in it for the glory, the money and the prestige of having “made it” in the current NAR/WOF streams of “ministry”. Certainly, her attempt to fuse Hyper Faith and her own interpretation of medical science, in no way allows her the moral license to teach this unbiblical rant from the pulpit, as if she were a qualified pastor or teacher, who holds the word of God in high esteem and the traditions of men in contempt.
Lastly, here is another curly-whirly our beloved Lady Leaf drops,
For the LOTR fans😃.. Mac and I are standing in the exact spot where Arwin was holding Frodo facing the Nazgul…facing our fears is difficult but not impossible when we rest in God!

THE RESULTS AFTER RECEIVING DR CAROLINE’S TEACHING?
Sadly, if you apply the teachings of Dr Leaf – you too could end up becoming a leaf like Chris Pringle.

Poor Chris! How will she ever recover after receiving this treatment from Dr Leaf?
Sadly, it is important we heed the warning’s Jesus gave the people against the Pharisees, against the Pringle’s, against the Copelands, against Caroline Leaf and against any other false teacher. It’s only a matter of time before the pit swallows them. Now is the time to outreach to these people and see them repent and turn to Jesus before it is too late.
“You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:
“‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;
in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”
And he called the people to him and said to them, “Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.” Then the disciples came and said to him, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” He answered, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” Matthew 15:7-14
“We do not know what Caroline Leaf actually taught about at C3′s Every Woman’s Conference. However, her instagram teaching’s may give us a clue…”
cw, i looked at some of the dr pitt links you posted in your initial article on CL. i didnt notice a link to these comments here on his website. especially the middle comment. its by someone at this conference who wasnt impressed either.. the other comments are interesting too.
Looks like some one got out the leaf blower and cleared up the garden path…
Usually when you say something is supported by research you add a link which takes you to it, or at a minimum reference it so you can see for yourself. Where is the research?
Those three in the top shot remind me of the characters in movie – “The Wizard of Oz” (how appropriate…):
The Tin Man – no heart
The Lion – no courage
The Scarecrow – no comment…
“Where is the research?”
Maybe we should put that question to “Doctor” Phil Pringle…
I was going to ask the same thing…WHERE is this so-called ‘research’?
Ludicrous.C3 endorses this ‘just believe what we tell you’ nonsense.
BUT, it does give a good insight into what phil and chris pringle fill [or should that be empty?] their head with on a daily basis whilst not in ‘pastor’ mode.
Their personal philosophies are on show…and it is simply non-Christian new age fluff.
Another example of C3 advertising their mate’s books/dvd’s hoping to target and fleece just that little bit more from unwary Christians.
Next will be a ‘photography’ book of cloud photos [ that mean something..apparently!]taken by master photographer phil from the million dollar pringle waterfront home.
Can’t wait for that little pot boiler.
“Next will be a ‘photography’ book of cloud photos [ that mean something..”
too late. david e taylor is already pushing clouds. he’s new apostolic reformation. at first i thought this was a joke, but its not. taylor is very out there.
i dont know if this is supposed to be related to the verse saying Jesus will come in the clouds or not. to us its silly, but not to someone demanding ‘signs’.
at some point i expect the ‘signs’ will get convincing, even to someone sensible..
“20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” (mark 13:20-22)
“18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,” (colossians 2:18)
Oh no…and i thought images appearing on toast and tacos were bad.
They obviously haven’t read, or don’t want to believe:
1.(Exodus 33:20)–“But He [God] said, “You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!”
2.(John 1:18)–“No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.”
3.(John 5:37)–“”And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.”
This guy is ‘predicting’ God will appear in cloud formations? Did Jesus Christ demand that we all look for cloud shapes?
Yep….i’m sure c3 will go for this. Coffee table book coming soon.
If it wasn’t so laughable, i would cry at this incredibly disappointing nonsense that they try to sell, under the name of Christianity.
“If it wasn’t so laughable, i would cry at this incredibly disappointing nonsense that they try to sell, under the name of Christianity.”
i know.. sadly the more laughable it gets, the more the ‘Church’ seems to believe it..
when i first saw these taylor pics, the 1st thing they reminded me of was a reinhard bonnke crusade. note taylors ‘book’ is even in korean too.
choo thomas freaky book on her ‘visit to heaven’ was endorsed by yonggi cho & it was the #1 best seller in s korea.
sorry guys my pics didnt work, but taylor admits here that ‘appearances’ are the BASIS of his ministry..
“He has been granted well over 1000 face-to-face visitation appearances from Jesus Christ personally which is the TOUCHSTONE AND CORNERSTONE of his special dynamic ministry.”
scammers get special ‘words from God’ which they pass down to us dumb common folk who dont share their annointing.
ps — taylor wears a general’s uniform in some of his pics. can you believe that?
thanks nfg..i hadn’t heard of ‘christians are stupid enough to believe this’ taylor.
David E Taylor website: ” During a face-to-face visitation appearance from the Lord in a dream, in his sleep, Jesus instructed him saying: “David, I am giving you the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven,” He continued saying, “whatever you bind on earth, I will personally back you up; and whatever you loose on earth, I will personally back you up.”
When did Jesus Christ start sounding like a cool hipster bro? ‘Back you up’?
AND he is a self proclaimed ‘apostle’ ? there must thousands of them now.
Maybe he IS an apostle…but he is an apostle of falsehood and lies.
Will we see him at a C3 exaltation..er…conference ‘bringing in the sheaves’ ?
Could he be the next Kong Hee ‘brother’ of phil pringle?
Even old ‘warragamba… damn’ phil wouldn’t do that…would he?
Then again, old phil had quite a few ‘visitations’ and he previously told his audiences that the Holy Spirit was the same height as him. I would say he is in for a shock come judgement day.
What is absolutely frightening is that these ‘pastors’ are claiming they bring in the ‘unsaved’ to Christianity, with their books/dvds, etc…These ‘nonsensical products’ are not aimed at those who know their Bible, they are aimed at bringing in those who do not know Jesus Christ, or His Holy Word…and giving them a false ‘carnal’ worldly counterfeit of their own imaginations, and paying for it no less!
When was the last time c3, hillsong or their ilk put out a ‘product’ to provide islamists, hinduism or any other faith, with the knowledge of Jesus Christ?
Easier to take Christian money apparently.
Re Taylor’s dream interpretations – last night I dreamed there was this awesome espresso machine combo for sale in Woorabinda. No lie. What does that mean? I’m called to be a barista in an Indigenous community? (No disrespect to them, just poking fun at Taylor).
Taylor’s site seems to be a one-stop shop for all your Christian needs eh. I wonder if they’ll do price matching too.
Oh ok hang on, this Taylor bloke is a joke.
1) He publicly compares himself to Moses.
2) The Face to Face Prophet page is all about him. Just him. Just how good he is.
3) Through dreams he can predict/avert major disasters? How about the great falling away?
So in other news, we have it wrong.
1 Tim 2:5 – “There is one mediator between God and man – the man David E. Taylor”
I don’t think people with diagnosed depression or bipolar should attend one of these sessions and be told “Research shows you have a pre-wired gift to achieve a unique and divine purpose!”
No I’m actually not joking this time. I have friends in this position, And thinking “positive thoughts” isn’t always gonna do the trick sorry Dr Leaf.
“No I’m actually not joking this time. I have friends in this position, And thinking “positive thoughts” isn’t always gonna do the trick sorry Dr Leaf.”
We know people in C3 who suffer mental issues ranging from bipolar, depression and various personality disorders. We’ve noticed that false teaching sadly, makes their conditions worse.
Furthermore, you don’t need to look far to see what happens to people’s mental conditions when they defend the teachings of C3 and Hillsong…
For our own sanity, we did not want to put our brains through another Caroline Leaf article. Instead, we’ve heavily edited the article to add some more insightful information about Caroline Leaf and edited some images.
We hope you appreciate the additional information.
Dr. Caroline Leaf automatically disqualified herself from any sort of ministry by endorsing the Copelands as “giants of the faith”. By endorsing her “ministry”, are the Pringles by default, endorsing the Copelands as well?
Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.,
Phil Pringle appears on Benny Hinn show and supports him..Phil is definitely disqualified.
There will be updates on Dr Caroline Leaf. Her work certainly warrants sound biblical critique. Her appearance at the Everywoman Conference was followed by a weekend of speaking to the whole congregation at C3 (regardless of the bible’s admonition of a woman not to teach men). Her association with the lowest form of heretics (at the 2014 “School of Daniel” 3 week intensive) included James Goll, Joshua Mills, Patricia King and Stacey Campbell (well known for her snake hissing, head twisting, prophecy over Todd Bentley) – these associations should have sent major alarm bells to the leadership at C3. But no, it’s the ear-tickling speakers yet again welcomed by these leaders who no longer trust the suffiency of God’s Word and sound exegesis to transform the hearts of men and women.
